What Are You Reading?

Km-kids-reading

I’m afraid I won’t have time in the morning to get my Friday What Are You Reading post done, so I’m popping in here to do that right now. I get more good book ideas from this post each week, so I don’t like to be too busy to ask you guys: What are YOU reading?

I’m about halfway through a short novella, I guess it would be, by Eileen Wilks, called Originally Human. It ties in with her World of the Lupi series, but so far, all the characters are new ones. However, they are currently on their way to see a very familiar character from the Lupi books, Cullen Seaborne, so there is going to be some sort of crossover stuff going on. I’m enjoying this story very much, and will be reviewing it when I finish.

So…YOUR turn. What are you reading this week? As always, inquiring minds wanna know.

Ritual Magic by Eileen Wilks

Ritual Magic

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Due to serious time constraints in my life right now, I don’t have time to wax eloquently about how much I loved this book. I will have to keep it short and sweet, so let me just say that Ritual Magic: World of the Lupi #10 is the best book of the series, so far! Hands down! If you have been following Lily Yu and Rule Turner, you will want to get this book immediately and find out where the story has gone. 

Eileen Wilks has built one of the most interesting, complex, and yet easily understood, magical Urban Fantasy worlds out there. I absolutely love her beautifully structured Lupi politics, the careful layering of history and mythology, the use of other forces the Lupi must deal with, and so much more. Especially the dragons. I have mentioned there are dragons in past reviews, but it bears repeating. Dragons. Of great beauty and power and wisdom. Oh, how I love their relationship with the Lupi and the world at large.

If you haven’t read any of this series, pick up the first book, Tempting Danger, and get started. Each book is better than the one before. And don’t be alarmed at all the romance books Wilks has written, if that is not your cup of tea. She is a very successful writer in that genre, but the Lupi books are pure Urban Fantasy, through and through. And terrific Urban Fantasy, at that.

Long Days of Reading…It Could Be Worse!

reading_baby_small

Having spent the last eight days alone in a hospital room, listening to the steady beep, beep, beep of the heart monitor, while waiting for my mother to have her surgery, then wake up again (which she didn’t do for four pretty scary days afterward!), I have found a lot of time to read, as you might imagine. I finished the latest World of the Lupi book, Ritual Magic, which was fantastic, and which I will be reviewing as soon as I catch my breath. And I’m re-reading one of my favorite Urban Fantasy books, Bayou Moon, by Ilona Andrews. It is Book 2 of their On The Edge series, and it is just as good this time around as it was the first. I’m remembering with every page why I fell in love with William Wolf and why he will always be one of my favorite characters in the genre. Maybe in any genre. He’s brilliantly done.

I will post a reminder tomorrow about my free promo for my own book, Summer Magic, and will get back in the swing of things here soon, I hope. My mother has taiken a turn for the better in the last two days, and we are all very encouraged about her progress from this point forward. Thanks to everyone who has written or posted, sending well-wishes to her, and to me, with my vision problem. (I’m coping. It’s not changing very much, but I’m learning how to deal with it better.)

Can’t wait for life to be back to something akin to normal again. I’ve missed you guys!!

Mortal Ties by Eileen Wilks

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Author Eileen Wilks was once best known for her light romance novels, which she has written in great number, and which have been very popular over the years.  But hiding inside this Romance writer was an Urban Fantasy author begging to be released.  At least, that’s my take on it.  When Wilks created the World of the Lupi in 2004, Read more…
